Sail Surf 14 days From Nias Indonesia to Phuket in Thailand, Free Trip

Single crew to assist in 14 day sail from Lagundri Bay in Nias Island Indonesia to Phuket in Thailand. Best for surfers, no sailing experience needed.

http://surfmachine-surfmachine.blogs...-or-pulua.html


Free trip for crew who can stand watches at night in rotation with skipper. Skipper and wife aboard 40 foot aluminium sloop. Crew has their own private forward double cabin. All meals and onboard costs met by skipper.


http://surfmachine-surfmachine.blogs...-or-pulua.html


Crew pays their own air fares and visa costs to Indonesia and from Thailand back home.

Trip starts first week in November 2015 and finishes on or before 14th November 2015. 7 days sailing time but we take 2 weeks with stops for surfing at
Lagundri bay
Bawa in hinakos islands
Afulu on nias
Treasure island or palau bangkaru
bay of plenty in the banyak islands, or palau tuangku

Longest sail is 48 hours from palau bankgaru to Banda Aceh, then another 48 hours across the malaccan straits to phuket.

Join the yacht in nias, fly to Kuala Lumpur from home, then medan and then gunning sitoli on nias, about 45 usd. Then 4 hour minivan trip to lagundri bay.

Bring your surf board if you are a surfer, I also have 6 surfboards in the board racks. For more details please email me at keithstirling1 care of gmail.com

Sounds eternally epic and like your style and lifestyle that is. Almost finished with my book and looking to crew for some real life and adventure.

14 days for the whole trip? Thanks in advance.

Sounds fun I'm in for a adventure. Just the right adventure and length of time estimate is to escape the winter of course. Called for adventure in the coming weeks. Have super yacht and sailing experience of 3 years. It's all about getting back to the grind. Surfed around those palatial areas of Indo before! Wow

good one Keith, have a safe trip!

there was lots of swell for the whole month I was in Bali, surfed 25 days out of 29

hey, what's the deal with private boats cruising the Maldives? too expensive or what?

Cheers!

Avast shipmates!

The Crew spot has been filled.

I am stuck in lagundri Bay with perfect overhead right hand surf. Thirteen set waves this arvo before dinner ashore with my beautiful wife.

Installed the new p70 raymarine autopilot control head yesterday to replace the failed st70.

Off to Sibolga on Sunday for another visa extension.

Thanks for your interest.

Cheers from Keith.

Avast forestspeaks.
Have crew already lined up. A 26 year old Irish lady. Scuba diver.
New autopilot was a blast! Great sail to and from Sibolga. 21 hours non stop each way. Lotsa stormy weather. Good surf at Lagundri Bay nias yesterday and this morn. Going to 6'.
Will stay here for 3 weeks and head off to the Banyaks and then Thailand.

Cheers from keith.

Cheers guys.
Great surf last few days here at lagundri Bay. One right hand barrel at lunchtime today.
Very smoky from the Sumatran bushfire. Rained all night.
